Whoever said that Paris is for lovers must have never been to Nafplion, the enchanting port town in Argolida which is known as one of the most romantic locations to visit in Greece. A mosaic of Byzantine, Ottoman and Venetian architecture in bougainvillea lined cobblestone streets invite one to get lost in an aura of old world charm. A stroll around the terracotta-topped stone mansion houses will certainly bring out your romantic side and sitting in the venetian port sipping an iced coffee or nibbling on succulent, freshly caught fish will whet your appetite for more.
A walk up to the hill-top Palamidi Fortresses that peers over the town is well worth it for the vista of the Bourtzi fortress sitting in the bay. A trip to the stunning ruins of the Acronauplia fortress behind the Old Town will complete your castle tour. A myriad of important archaeological sites are also easily accessible nearby, with Ancient Corinth, Mycenae, Tyrins and the theatre of Epidavros evoking an alluring ambience of the past.
Rolling vineyards and verdant orchards in the surrounding area offer ample opportunity for exploring on foot, by cycle or on horseback. The area is well know for its first-class wines and a visit to one of its estates means a chance to savour rich reds and crisp whites in a rustic setting. A string of secluded beaches to be found dotted around the coastline, just perfect for a romantic getaway. Alternatively, you can take a day cruise to the cosmopolitan islands of Hydra and Spetses and enjoy a sip of crisp Moschofilero while admiring the sunset from the deck.
Finally, Nafplion is only a two-hour drive from Athens, making it ideal for a day out, a weekend jaunt or as your main holiday destination. Explore this wonderful region during your stay at Perivoli and return home feeling totally enamoured by your experience.
